Chairman warns new Swansea boss Laudrup over transfer budget

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says new boss Michael Laudrup will not have a generous transfer budget. The Swans received around £5m from Liverpool for ex-boss Brendan Rodgers but will not spend unnecessarily on new players.

"There will be no money handed to Michael Laudrup or any other manager," he said.

"Every player we bring into this club will be discussed and agreed between ourselves.

"If we feel it's right for us then we'll make every attempt as always to make sure that we bring in and spend whatever the manager sees fit.

"We'll do what we need to do and get our squad right before the season starts."

"Most of the work where we felt we needed to strengthen has already been done by what we did last year. I don't think a lot of that is going to change.

"It's a matter of sitting down with the manager and looking at different options and where we see us moving forward with how are we going to start next season.

"We'll just focus on making sure we get a strong squad in readiness to having another massive challenge in August."
